Maoists Allegedly Kill Former Member in Red Corridor
A poster found at the crime scene claimed responsibility for the killing of a 25-year-old man who fled the Bhakpa rebel group.

Homeless Camp Demolished in California’s Silicon Valley
‘The Jungle’ has housed hundreds in the area over more than a decade. The closure was part of a $4 million project to reduce homelessness.

Neighboring Countries Send Much-Needed Drinking Water
A fire disrupted operations at the main water treatment plant in the capital Malé, forcing the government to declare a state of emergency.

Shepherd Dogs Trained to Hunt Poachers
Their sharp sense of smell makes the animals better for tracking illegal activity than surveillance drones and human patrols.
